The Travis (3300 Main) by PM Realty Group: 30-story, 336-unit high-rise

Recommended Posts

I went back and clicked on the link to the rendering (https://www.aecom.com/projects/3300-main-street/) and found this gem

It is strategically located equidistant between downtown Houston and the Texas Medical Center, adjacent to the Main Street stop of the METRORail Red Line.

 

Main street stop?  Someone garbled what they meant to say

Saw this building peeking out of midtown while riding the bus from Grandparkway. This and the other high-rises being built, are going to change the skyline. They're going to be a huge catalyst for merging of the Downtown and TMC skylines. With the way things are going, this merging might happen sooner than later. Can't wait for this and Caydon to finish.

The sky was an incredible yellow color and throw in a partial rainbow. Really interesting sky tonight.

Thanks,   for passing on such an interesting image. especially the first one. Love the atmospheric quality you achieved.

That would arguably be the best possible thing that could happen to Midtown right now.

Hey, Zone de Erotica has finally bit the dust, and I thought it would never happen.

 

Maybe we will see something happen in the next few years! Midtown just keeps growing.

Yes, and I'd guess it was probably from October given that the Caydon tower still has the cranes up and isn't quite topped out yet.

No.  The angle is wrong for it to be from the roof of the Holiday Inn.  It has to have been taken from the roof of the former Days Inn/Heaven on Earth.

 

Edit:  Confirmed.  The post on Reddit says it was taken "From the Roof of the Old Days Inn."

No, not wrong.  The Days Inn was originally a Holiday Inn.

I'd be curious to see the car traffic counts on this stretch of Main St.  It would be great to see Main St. turned into a pedestrian/bike promenade from the Ion all the way to McGowan.  i don't think it would effect too many drivers.

 

I know the Drewery folks had pitched something like this last year......hadn't heard any updates.

I don't think there is enough there there to justify a pedestrian promenade just yet. 

 

Maybe it can serve double duty where at a certain time the street converts to a pedestrian promenade. Kinda like how certain streets ( Bourbon, Royal) in NOLA are converted after 5

And then one day, Midtown suddenly had it's own little baby skyline.

 

Small beginnings. Tear down the Pierce elevated, throw in about twenty to thirty more buildings in Midtown between 20-40 stories stretching all the way down to the Museum district, and Houston will have one giant, continuous skyline. One that rivals the big cities! I say give Houston about 50 more years, it is bound to happen one day. I may not live to see it but it will happen.

Isnt Caydon (the Aussie company?) building 3 more high rises next to the first one?

by the time final four gets here in 2023 there will be about 10 high rises in midtown

Next step: get rid of that CVS.

But that's the CVS I always go to...  I do agree that the current development is a wasted opportunity.

Yes — Replace it with a CVS on the ground floor of a mixed use high rise! 😁

I believe you meant to post these on the Caydon thread. Nice photos though.
